It Will Now Cost You $99 To Step Foot Inside Disney’s Magic Kingdom For A Day

Less than a year after Disney last hiked its prices for the Magic Kingdom at Disney World the House of Mouse is tacking on a few extra bucks to the cost of tickets yet again. It’ll now cost anyone 10 and older $99 for a day’s admission, and kids will pay $93.

Just last June Disney changed adult day passes from $89 to $95 and from $85 to $89 for kids, marking the first time the company charged different prices for Disney World and Disneyland. Changes are in effect as of Sunday.

This recent uptick doesn’t only hit tourists heading to the popular Magic Kingdom. One-day tickets for Epcot, Animal Kingdom and Hollywood studios will also go up in price for adults, from $90 to $94 and for kids from $84 to $88.

“Our pricing reflects the high quality and breadth of experiences we offer and our ongoing commitment to investing in our parks,” a Disney spokesman told the Orlando Sentinel. “We offer a variety of ticket options that provide a great value, and find that most guests select multi-day tickets that offer additional savings.”

For now it seems that ticket prices are staying the same over in California, with the Disneyland site showing the same prices as back in June — $92 for an adult pass and $86 for a kid’s one-day admission ticket.

    Last year when we went the big rumor was that the FastPass system was going to be phased-out and replaced with a Fastpass+ bracelet system that was only going to be offered to guests of the resort hotels.

    So unless you’re staying there you get to pay $99 AND get jumped over in line by anybody staying at the resort. Sounds like a win-win to me.

    Add the tax and it’s $105.44. For the other parks it’s $100.11. The way to save the most is to buy multiday passes. Or a resort package deal.

    Frankly I feel it’s not worth it anymore.

    Well, I’m done. I’ve taken my kids there twice now, and I hope they have good memories of the place because that”s probably the last time I’m going to step foot in there.

    Florida’s minimum wage is $7.79 per hour and that is what Disney starts at.
    The average Walt Disney World hourly worker gets paid $8.44 an hour or $15,799 a year (Disney limits to less than 40 hours a week to ensure they dont pay overtime).
    In 2006 they started at $6.40 an hour and now they make $1.39 more an hour in 2014.
    This is about $115 million more in wages they pay for 40,000 employees a year in 2014 vs 2006.
    Also, Disney pays about $30 million a year just in fireworks.

    In 2006 a Disney World ticket was $67.00 and now in 2014 it is $99. That greatly out paces the labor increases. Magic kingdom holds 100K people so lets say 70% occupancy rate average.
    In 2006 they made 1.7 billion off Magic Kingdom Tickets.
    In 2014 they will make $2.5 billion off Magic Kingdom Tickets.
    They make an extra $800 million in revenue off just Magic Kingdom while wages only went up by about $115 million for all their parks combined.

    Here are Disney’s historic ticket prices:

    This is a case of gouging customers because they can.
    Disney’s employee union has been horrible in negotiating higher wages.
    Maybe this year they will try to get most of their workers above $10 an hour as an average of $8.44 an hour is just sad.
